Republicans are significantly outpacing Democrats in new voter registration in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania, with the GOP registering almost 165,000 since the 2016 primary. Only 30,000 new registered Democrats have joined the party during the same time frame, even as the party conducted a competitive presidential primary election. This makes for a difference of 135,000 voters in favor of the Republican Party, a margin that could easily prove crucial to determining the state’s electoral fate in November.
Democrats still do outnumber Republicans in total in the east coast state, a relic of the state’s decades of strict allegiance to the party. President Trump’s 2016 victory largely came about as a result of his surprise victory in the state, which smug neoliberal political pundits had assumed was a lock for the Democrat.
Pennsylvania Republican Party chairman Lawrence Tabas cited the voter registration surge on the part of Republicans in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer as a reason to be optimistic about securing a victory for the President in the state in November, citing the thin margin of victory in 2016.
“Look, the president won our state by 44,000-plus votes in 2016,” said Tabas. “We have since picked up and narrowed the gap between us and the Democrats [by 135,000]. So we were already ahead 44,000, and look what we’ve picked up. I predict we’re going to narrow the gap further between now and November.”
The most recent polls surveying the voters of Pennsylvania show a tight horse race between Trump and Biden, with the former eroding the latter’s former lead to compete with the Democrat within the margin of error. The most recent poll CNBC showed Biden leading Trump by merely 2%, 48% to 46%. That’s not much different than the polls favoring Hillary Clinton in the state before then-candidate Trump’s shock election night victory.
Don’t believe sham polls. This race is red hot.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
